FDI in Georgia

By Messenger Staff
Tuesday, February 14
Foreign direct investment in Georgia since the Rose Revolution (in USD):

2004 499.1 million
2005 449.8 million
2006 1.190 billion
2007 2.14 billion
2008 1.564 billion
2009 658.4 million
2010 814 million
2011 (first three quarters) 643 million

FDI was highest in 2007, but thanks to the 2008 war with Russia, investment decreased dramatically. In 2009, the government hoped to break the 1 billion USD mark, but failed.
